About the Book

The Iraq war in 2003 raised fundamental questions on the practice of 'might is right' and the principle of cooperation and multilateralism in addressing perceived global security challenges. It also placed the United Nations at a critical juncture or, "a fork in the road" as referred to by UNSG Kolf Annan.

This book is a collection of high-quality papers presented by academicians, diplomats and UN officials who had deliberated on this issue in January 2004.
